Yeah-eh-heah
You are, my fire,
The one, desire,
Believe, when I say
I want it that way

But we, are two worlds apart,
Can't reach to your heart,
When you say,
That I want it that way

Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a heartache,
Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a mistake,
Tell me why,
I never want to hear you say,
I want it that way

Am I, your fire?
Your one, desire,
Yes I know, it's too late,
But I want it that way

Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a heartache,
Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a mistake,
Tell me why,
I never want to hear you say,
I want it that way

Now I can see that we've fallen apart,
From the way that it used to be, Yeah,
No matter the distance,
I want you to know,
That deep down inside of me

You are, my fire,
The one, desire,
You are (You are, you are, you are)

Don't want to hear you say,
Ain't nothin' but a heartache,
Ain't nothin' but a mistake,
(Don't want to hear you say),
I never want to hear you say,
I want it that way

Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a heartache,
Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a mistake,
Tell me why,
I never want to hear you say,
I want it that way

Tell me why,
Ain't nothin' but a heartache,
Ain't nothin' but a mistake,
Tell me why,
I never want to hear you say,
(Never want to hear you say it),
I want it that way

'Cause I want it that way
